Bex-Thailand- January 26th 2015.
Bex is Uptight's long serving Model, assistant and close friend, so when it came to making her wedding dress, Uptight was exited and honoured to do so.
But unlike all of Bexs normal modelling, there was to be no big corseted frock...as it was on a sun drenched beach on a Thai Island, so the lighter, less fabric the better...as long as there was enough room to sew on a million crystals, that was enough!
Bex's dress was a fitted, backless mini dress in shimmering pale green silk, with delicate pale green silk chiffon draped over the front and one shoulder. With a double layer coming from the skirt, with a small train, with an opening at the front, edged in gold thread.
Then there was the masses of varying shade and sizes of green and clear AB Swarovski crystals...all hand sewn in a cluster from one of the sides, spreading out over the rest of the dress. At the back there was a set of graduated draped hanging beads, framing her back, also sneaked in was her pet name, 'Mimmsy' in gold thread.
Uptight also made the headdress, earrings and wrist cuff.
Thank you Bex for the pics from the day.
A year ago I came to my best friend with an idea, I was scared because it was a huge ask, and something completely different. Jan was scared too, she didn't want me to be disappointed. Jan literally captured my dream (no, literally, I dreamt about this colour the night before) and she has no idea how privileged I feel to own my very own, custom made, blood, sweat & tears and 'fucking chiffon' uptight wedding gown. I love this woman to her bones, she is the kindest, most caring, most giving person I have ever had the fortune to come across. Jan is beautiful inside and out, and dedicates her life to making every woman who is fortunate to cross her path feel utterly awesome, like a goddess that can't be touched. If you ever get the chance, you need just 1 day of this woman in your life, trust me, that's all it took for me, and 10years later, here we are! Thank you Uptight Clothing, for the most beautiful dress I could have imagined, you took my dream and blew it out of the water with more awesomeness and sparkle than even I could dream up!!! I love you to the moon and back Janice Whitehorn 😘
